Great Work!

Moving sound and images. And great story telling. An example of art in cinema and dipiction of the human condition with relationship to the planet and universe we live in. The entire cast was well selected and the design was very original. I agree Kubrick might have liked it. Very inspiring.

Melancholia Triumphs!! Poetry in Motion.

The movie is sheer genius. Topped only by Midnight in Paris.
Those who feel the time was wasted…need simpler movies.
This was worth the time and effort.
